SYNOPSIS

Written by Ben Ross. Art by J.K. Woodward.

Jason Bourne meets Black Widow in Belladonna—Ben Ross and J.K. Woodward’s high-stakes thriller about corruption, compassion, and the very nature of identity.

Carrie (if that’s even her real name) wakes up in the hospital, with no memory of who she is, or how she got there. She soon learns that she was the world’s most vicious assassin—a ruthless killer who could dodge bullets, and took body parts as trophies. Only now, she doesn’t want to kill people anymore. She just wants to help them.

But her newfound altruism doesn’t change the fact that there are people after her. Dangerous people, who want her dead—because of the secrets still buried in mind.

Meanwhile, a rash of particulate matter-based lung diseases has broken out. The drug Clearomax, the only treatment, is expensive, and not readily available. Armed with only her wits and her killer instincts, Carrie sets out on a dangerous journey to help those most afflicted, and find out who she really is.

But can she overcome her nature? Can good deeds wash out the evil in her past? Or is it a question of “once a killer, always a killer”?
